The Redskins are mathematically still alive in the NFC playoff race, but after four straight losses and with the team down to its fourth quarterback, many fans have given up on this season with three games to go.

And going into next season, there needs to be some new blood in the front office and on the coaching staff, John Keim explained to The Junkies Monday.

"They have to take a hard, hard look at every aspect of this organization, and why are people staying away in droves," Keim said. "You have to look at everything. And you can't just write it off because of the injuries, I think that would be a mistake."

"What changes will be made? I don't know, but whether it's Bruce Allen, Jay Gruden, Greg Manusky, all of them, one of them, you can't come back with the same group and expect fans to buy into that."

Dan Snyder has plenty of tough decision to make this offseason, but one problem which Keim points out is Snyder's "inner circle" includes the likes of Allen and Gruden, whose jobs need to be evaluated.

"Inside the organization, ... it's Bruce, and it's Bruce and Jay," he said. "I don't know that there's anybody else there."

Thus, if significant change is to occur, other members of the ownership group may need to step in, says Keim.

"That group does have an influence over what's going on, or at least can get to (Snyder) and say some stuff," Keim told The Junkies. "I don't know ... what they think about anybody here, but I do think that he has that group, and that's a group that has been influential and heard in the past."
